in canada. nbc's kevin tibbles is watching things from his point in rock port, massachusetts. kevin, looks pretty nice there this morning, right? >> reporter: alex, it's a beautiful day here in rock port. i don't know if i'm supposed to be embarrassed to say that to you. i feel a little bit embarrassed being out here outside talking about this monstrous category 4 earl hurricane that is basically category 4 wimp when it comes to the coastline of massachusetts. i don't want to get ahead of myself because we don't know what's happening up in nova scotia really except the rain started there. this storm kept far away from cape ann where i'm talking to you from today in rockport. a lot of the activities put on hold because of the storm for the long weekend here are now back on today. and my only real advice to people who perhaps were scared away from coming down to the sea shore would be to hop in the car. it is a lovely day. and i'm not going to be the only one eating all the salt water taffy here. i would suggest coming down to rockport. it's a beautiful day down here. you know, it's sort of
to canada. blasting nova scotia when it came ashore this morning, offering a finishing kick to this largely oversold storm. by contrast, along the u.s. atlantic coast, the sigh of relief at earl's weakness seemed almost as powerful as the hurricane's winds. >> i was really happy that nothing bad happened. >> reporter: on cape hatteras, earl's first target, they reopened a bridge to the north carolina mainland anda the tourists resurfaced. in rhode island, a big surf was the only remnant of the storm. there was some beach erosion on long island, but the damage was light compared to the drum roll of predictions. >> a team of reporters and meter olses will bring you live coverage over the next hour and a half. >> reporter: trees were felled in nantucket, but looking at the beaches and shoppers, the scene did not resemble the state of emergency the massachusetts governor declared just hours ago. >> i was thrilled, you know. the sun was out and shining. people are walking around town. >> reporter: indeed, the federal emergency management team said no states had even asked for assistance. this si
. very close to canada and nova scot scotia. what we are seeing in this picture is something you can just barely make out. that would happen to be an area of low pressure, this kicked up right there. and at the same time, a frontal boundary that extends from it and that frontal boundary is going to help kick out that storm deeper into the atlantic and pushing it farther to the north out of harm's way. the question is where is it going to go? the latest path we have from the national hurricane center has it moving up towards nova scotia. i'm thinking landfall around noon. maybe a little bit beforehand. it's moving to the northeast at 30 miles per hour. just yesterday it was around 18 miles an hour. definitely has really increased its progress. certainly good news. the bad news is though, we still have a lot to deal with with this particular storm. you've got earl located right about here. going to put that down as an area of low pressure. at the same time, we have fiona, what is left of fiona, in this particular stop. those two entities, the issues now is you're going to have a lot of wave
and consolidate the democratic vote so that drove across canada take much of that. kendrick meek can consolidate -- so that charlie crist does not take much of that. the kendrick meek also needs to consolidate the republican vote. independence made break the vote here. -- independents may break the vote here. you have obviously the most popular incumbent in harry reid, with the senate majority leader, but he is running against someone who has a not a lot of experience on the campaign trail and is prone to engage in her mouth before her brain. but the thing about nevada, there is another option on the ballot. it is called "none of the above." if you do not like your candidate, you can vote for no one. that might actually save leader reid. independents are not breaking strongly in the new direction. this will be closed until a election day. host: let's go to libby in nantucket on the independent line. do you have a specific race that you are watching? caller: we are here for the summer. the we reside in connecticut. are you doing all of this behind a desk in washington? and on to chris matthews be
that the northern government has signed with china and others, canada, even, and others who have interest in the oil. those agreements are going to have to be looked at, both by the north and south. it's not a matter of the south taking over and saying we are going to start afresh. those are agreements that have to be honored, or maybe can be renegotiated with the new independent government, but that's an area where there's need for cooperation between the north and south. another issue is what do you do with the citizenship issue. northerners will live in the south after the vote, and southerners who live in the north. what is their status? we won't want a situation where there's ethnic cleansing or people pushed out of their homes because they are not now consider add northerner or southerner or citizen of that new country. those are important issues that have to be addressed. finally, the real challenge for the oil is corruption. there's corruption in the national congress party and in the sudan people's liberation movement. there needs to be greater transparency, and checks put in place so that
